Quilts at the Station
The Threads of Kindness has displayed at the Festival since 2012. It was a highlight with so many crafters in our region.Wikipedia says "Quilting is a sewing method done to join two or more layers of material together to make a thicker padded material."

Those of us who live in Alberta know that quilting is certainly more than that. It's a culture that has been embraced for hundreds of years. Quilting bees bring friends and neighbours together to visit, spend time together, and share in their love of quilting.

Quilting is an art the Mountain View Arts Festival embraced at its first festival, and was expanded as a full-fledged Quilt Show, simply because that's what everyone wanted! You won't want to miss this fabulous show in 2017!

Viewer's Choice
It's not going to be easy, but when you come into the Train Station, you're going to have to pick one! The Viewer's Choice prize goes to the quilter with the most votes.

Quilt making has had a resurgence in recent years - there's more quilt stores in the region, more than any other hobby store. The fabrics are more versatile and creative. The Arts Festival is looking forward to showcasing the beautiful work these ladies - and men - create.


Beautiful quilts on display from all over Central Alberta.
